Verdict

WHOOSHKA is selected here ahead of Rocky's Pride, Mr Udagawa and Ordoney in what looks a quality handicap. The selection has only had three starts, but she was wise enough to win first time up at Newbury. Her next run at Leicester was decent, however she then disappointed badly at Haydock in tacky ground. The drop back to this trip will suit as will the quicker ground, and so she might be worth chancing. Ordoney has had a good season; he wasn't rushed to the racecourse and he will only get better with time, especially now returned to this trip. Dubai Crest and Opera Prince are both course and distance winners, however neither comes here in the best of form, so a horse with a more enticing profile is Rocky's Pride. He was last seen trying hurdling at Bangor but that went to pot and he should appreciate the return to the flat although he doesn't look 'chucked in' off a mark of 80. Mr Udagawa sneaks in at the right end of the weights, as does Burns Night who has had a busy time of things this season. At a price Golden Rock is capable of better, however in a tightly-knit race it is Whooska who edges the vote.
